Have a Happy New Year! Let’s start this year with another movie soundtrack: Howard the Duck, an unlikely hero. This failed production from George Lucas is very entertaining once you pass the high expectations on any Lucas production.
The music has three components: songs in chage of Thomas Dolby, score music by John Barry and additional music by Silvester Levay. I am assuming that the synth-based music was the work of Levay and leaving the songs apart, the rest must be Barry’s music and they are consistent with his style. Joining these three contributions there is a lot of music. Again, there is a LP release but no official CD release, although there is a bootleg CD by Mask (the same CD with The Black Hole).
I have extracted the music from the laser disc and here I present two zip files, the edited version with some dialogue and sound effects and the unedited version.
The music is available in two zip file from this Multi link, the edited version :
